Project Description

In this project, students will delve into the world of sustainable user experience (UX) design and prototyping for green innovations. The project will centre around a Danish eco-friendly technology company, aiming to expand its global footprint by creating digital products that promote sustainability and environmental consciousness.

The key challenge is to design and prototype digital experiences that not only align with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), but also resonate with a global audience, while showcasing green practices.

Can a Danish technology company effectively utilize sustainable UX principles in its digital products and prototypes, to enter global markets, contribute to SDGs, and achieve commercial success?

Students will work on designing sustainable user experiences, incorporating eco-friendly features, and creating prototypes of digital products for the selected company. Additionally, they will conduct an analysis of target international markets, evaluating consumer preferences, eco-consciousness, and technological adoption.

Objective, and analytical output

The company's leadership seeks your insights into the potential impact of sustainable UX design and prototyping on its ability to create green digital products, contribute to SDGs, and succeed in international markets. They also require an assessment of key market factors influencing the decision to implement green UX in their digital products.
